Creating a page

A red link such as Non-existent page indicates that the page does not exist. Clicking on it will bring you to a page where the first version of it can be written and saved.

Another way to create a new page is to navigate to the URL directly. For example, typing out http://wiki.shardsofdalaya.com/index.php/Non-existent page onto the browser's URL address bar and hitting the enter button will achieve the same effect as clicking on the red link above.

Before saving changes

Once you've edited in your changes, before actually saving them, make use of the "Show preview" button to preview how your changes would look like after you saved. Avoid saving too often or saving just to see what it looks like. Each page save will generate an entry in recent changes. Repeated trivial and unnecessary saves tend to clutter up that list and inconvenience users who make use of that list to watch for vandals or misinformed edits.
